I first stayed at Riad Dollar Des Sables in 2011, when I toured Morocco with a friend. We stayed at Cathy's riad several times, as our travels brought us in and out of Marrakesh. Cathy has travel agency background and is keenly aware of what's needed to enhance her guests' experience. Our own experience here was such a happy one... More

What a lovely place to stay! Beautiful riad, amazing location and very helpful staff. Everyone here made us feel very welcome and at home, especially Ali who went out of his way to go and buy us some shampoo and walk us to the square to get a taxi. The breakfast was delicious! Cathy took her time to advise us... More

I have now stayed here on both my trips to Marrakech and love the atmosphere and the INCREDIBLE staff. The staff are the shining star here. Ali, Mouna, and Salah are all very helpful and hospitable people. Mouna's cooking is the best food in all of Marrakech so if you stay here, eat here. I do recommend sourcing your own... More

This was our first visit to Marrakech and Cathy's riad was the perfect location for our stay. Based next to a lively souk and just a 5 mins walk from the Jemaa el-Fnaa, the riad was ideal for exploring the medina. Cathy's team of staff were incredibly diligent and attentive in enabling us to have the best possible time during... More

This was my first ever visit to Marrakech, and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This is a traditional riad located in the souks just north of Jemaa El-Fna, about a five minute walk away. While you might not easily find it unaided on your first arrival, they were able to book us a taxi from... More

After 24 hrs of flying, our experience of Marrakesh and Cathy's Riad was pleasant and easy for 4 exhausted travellers from Australia. Ali meet us managed our luggage through the winding narrow streets to the haven that became our home for the next 5 days.

The location of the Riad was very handy for exploring on foot the many secrets of Marrakech. The staff, especially Ali and the cook and the maid, were wonderful. However, the air conditioner in our room did not work and it made for miserable nights. I'd like to say that Catherine did everything possible to get it fixed, but she... More

I have just returned from a three night stay here with seven of my friends. We arrived late one evening and were met from the taxi (all arranged by the owner Cathy) by Salah who showed us across the bustling Jemaa El Fna, through the souk and along the winding passage ways to the Riad.

Great hotel! Very, very friendly staff! Helped us and made breakfast and dinner one evening. The only downside is that the physical location is a little confusing to get to--would recommend getting someone from the hotel to show the way.

Absolutely the best part of our stay in Marrakech! A beautiful place, filled with the friendliest staff I have so far come across in any hotel, anywhere. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay interesting, safe and comfy which was massively appreciated after the initially daunting experience of the windy souk mayhem in the midst of which...
